Manuel’s story

My name is Manuel Rodriguez Perez and I am originally from Hidalgo in Mexico. I am married to my beautiful wife Alejandra, and we are the proud parents of 4 children — 3 girls (Yareli Zain, Eli Gemma, Angeli Rubi), and 1 boy (Manuel Alejandro). I live in Daly City from where I run my business Manuel Rodriguez Perez Landscaping. 

This loan is special because:

It creates economic opportunity and jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area.

More about this loan

Business Description

I have been running my business now for 2 years. Before starting my own business, I worked in the landscaping industry for 18 years. But now I am enjoying being my own boss! I work on the business with my wife Alejandra. Over the last 2 years we have been gradually building up our client base. Right now, we have 25 regular clients, and we hope to keep increasing that number over the coming months and years. Most of my clients live in San Francisco, although some of them are spread out throughout the Bay Area — from Marin, to Oakland, to San Mateo, and even Sonoma.

At the moment, it is just the two of us that work on the business, but in the future we dream of hiring more employees as we grow our client base.

What is the purpose of this loan?

The truck that I use for my business has some problems with it currently — mostly some work that needs doing with the tires and the engine. I would also love to buy a box for the back of the truck, which would help secure my tools.

I will also be using the loan to upgrade my tools — I need to buy a leaf blower, hedge shears, a chainsaw, and buy a new strimmer because my current one is broken.About Manuel Rodriguez Perez Landscaping

Industry: Services

A loan of $5,000 helps upgrade my tools and fix my truck.
